The Houston Astros were accused of cheating throughout the playoffs, having someone sneaking around and stealing signs from the Boston Red Sox.

On Wednesday, two people familiar with the situation said the Astros attempted to get a second person next to the Indians' dugout during Game 3 of the AL Division Series after another man was removed earlier by security for taking pictures with his cellphone.

According to ESPN's Buster Olney, the Astros deployed McLaughlin to monitor whether the Red Sox were cheating on their side of the field.

When asked if he felt like anything was going on the first two ALCS games at Fenway Park, Cora responded, "No, I don't".

During the Astros' series-clinching win on October 8 at Progressive Field in Cleveland, a man with a cellphone standing by the photographer's pit was removed "several times" by security personnel, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press on Tuesday night. "I'm anxious about the game".

"We are aware of the matter, and it will be handled internally", Pat Courtney, MLB's chief communications officer, said Tuesday night, following Boston's 8-2 victory in Game 3 at Houston's Minute Maid Park.

Mega Millions jackpot grows again as no one wins
No winning lottery ticket was sold for the Mega Millions drawing Friday night, meaning the jackpot climbs to $654 million. It typically takes about two hours from the time of the drawing to process all the tickets and find out if someone won.

General manager Jeff Luhnow said the Astros have been proactive in policing other ballparks for "suspicious activity" and the team has uncovered some "multiple" times. He was then removed from the media-credentialed area.

The incident took place Saturday night in Boston.

Nothing the Astros do would be considered a surprise to the Red Sox, since manager Alex Cora served as Houston's bench coach previous year. A thorough investigation concluded that an Astros employee was monitoring the field to ensure that the opposing Club was not violating any rules.

"But every once in a while - and there have been multiple instances of us identifying suspicious activity - we reported it to Major League Baseball and we looked into it ourselves on certain cases and certain instances".

All of the suspicion has added to the length of each game, as both teams' catchers have routinely walked to the mound to confer with their pitchers, usually while covering their mouths with their gloves.
